Nair San, the Mohanlal-Jackie Chan movie is one of the most anticipated upcoming projects of Malayalam cinema. According to Albert Antony, the director, Nair San is made with a massive budget of 400 Crores.
Reportedly, the movie will be produced by a foreign production house, as the Indian production houses are reluctant to fund such a massive budget venture. The production is still under the pre-production stage.
Nair San, which was announced in 2009, was delayed indefinitely after the production house decided to back out from the project. It was reported that the banner was doubtful about Mohanlal's hold in the international market.
But now, the makers decide to revive the project, considering the massive success of Mohanlal's recent movie Pulimurugan. The team feels that the actor can now easily make an impression in the international market.
Mohanlal is now undoubtedly one of the most bankable actors of the Indian film industry. If Nair San becomes true, the actor will succeed in establishing himself as one of the leading Indian stars in the global level.
The movie, which is set in the pre-independence era, will have Mohanlal in the role of an Indian soldier named Ayyappan Nair. Jackie Chan, on the other hand, will appear as a Japanese martial arts expert.
